Lulay meeting with doctor for knee update; Buono won’t name starting QB


The B.C. Lions quarterback situation just got more intriguing.

3DownNation’s Lowell Ulrich reports a couple of key¬†details from Monday’s practice.

Lulay meeting with a doctor to see where the health of his knee stands and figure out a ‘rep schedule’ would indicate the veteran passer is nearing full health. He threw for 1,693 passing yards and 10 touchdowns in 2017 but suffered a season-ending ACL injury on September 8 against Montreal.

Combined with the fact Lions head coach Wally Buono wouldn’t divulge his starting quarterback for Week 5 could mean there is a chance Lulay gets the call when Winnipeg visits B.C. Place on Saturday.

All 10 seasons Lulay has been in the CFL he’s played in B.C. passing for 18,858 yards, 114 touchdowns against 64 interceptions with a 63.9 completion rate and 94.2 QB rating. The 34-year-old won the CFL MOP award in 2011 while leading the Lions to a Grey Cup victory on home turf that same season.

Jonathon Jennings has struggled to begin the season, managing just 487 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in three games with the Lions at 1-2, last place in the West Division.
